The MRS Tulo is a straight forward no-nonsense solo packraft without a spraydeck. They are still made by MRS out of extremely tough, yet lightweight, materials. This packraft is for those who are looking for a serious packraft but value simplicity and light weight. The lighter weight means you can carry it for longer over greater distances without discomfort (unlike carrying bulky inflatable kayaks or even bulkier and cumbersome hardshell sea kayaks!).
Despite their light weight, these MRS packrafts are capable of carrying allot of gear! They are especially useful to sling into your backpack and take wherever you go, then if you find a river you would like to travel down or a lake you would like to cross, it can be inflated within minutes using the supplied inflator bag, and you are on the water without a fuss. Portability is the key USP of the MRS Tulo – it is amazingly small when packed and light – you can literally go a whole day or weekend hiking with it and all the rest of your gear.
The Tulo is suitable for calm water but not coastal expeditions. It is however the ideal short tender given its ultra low weight of 2.27kg and extremely small packable size; stow it away in some of the smallest spaces aboard your current boat – then when you paddle to shore, roll it, stick it in your backpack – no need to leave it on the beach like other more traditional bulky and heavy inflatable boat tenders. If space is limited, the MRS Tulo is the tender for you.
MRS packraft are made out of polyurethane coated nylon, which is a material that is UV-resistant, tear-resistant and long lasting. The packrafts have sewn and welded seams and are handmade which is better for the environment than PVC inflatables which are less durable, much heavier and require the use of harmful glues.
